Expert 
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
The age defying machine. Draft with confidence, especially if you can pair him with a first round RB. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Jones is the model of consistency, his season has ended with him ranked 8th, 2nd, 6th, 6th, 5th, and 5th the last six seasons. He does turn 31-years old this off-season, but there is no reason to think he can't be an elite WR1 with QB Matt Ryan at the helm in 2020.Hopkins slipped in 2019, he averaged only 11.2 yards per reception and he tallied only 7 touchdowns. He could have a new lease on life in Arizona playing with QB Kyler Murray. Hopkins is still an elite WR1.
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Julio Jones had 1394 receiving yards last season, second in the league only to Michael Thomas, and that was his LOWEST yardage output since his rookie season in 2013. You can't find a more consistent player year-over-year and at 31 years old, he certainly still has enough left in him to stay at this level for another year. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
It's hard to find someone who's been as outstanding as Julio Jones over the past few years. Jones has finished as the WR5 or higher each of the past three seasons and he seems like a lock to repeat that type of performance again in 2020. This offense is going to air it out and Jones has yet to show any sign that he's losing a step at this point of his career. Feel confident in drafting Jones again as a top-5 option in 2020.Hopkins will have a change of scenery in 2020, but that doesn't mean that we should expect a significant drop-off in production. Hopkins may not see the overall target totals that he has in years past, but he's still connected to a dynamic offense and will see plenty of scoring opportunities. Hopkins is a locked-in WR1 this season yet again.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
Matt Ryan has supported 2 Top 24 PPR WRs four times in his career. Amongst active QBs, only Aaron Rodgers has more seasons of supporting 2 Top 24 WRs. @ClutchFantasyDeandre Hopkins 2019: Age 27, 150 targets, 104 receptions, 1183 yards, 7 TDs, 18 ppr/ppg DLF ADP: 1.07 (WR2). Since 2009, only 26.0% of WRs to average 10+ PPG and then change teams have improved their PPG in the following season. Change the PPG threshold to 12 and that number drops to 20.9%. At 15 it's 0.0%. Hopkins posted 111 - 1521 - 11 TDs with Hoyer, Mallett, Yates and Weeden.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
WR6, WR2, WR6, WR4, WR5, WR3. Has anyone been more reliable in fantasy over the last six years? Julio Jones continues to churn out the numbers in this high powered Falcons offence. That's despite consistently low TD numbers and serious target competition in Calvin Ridley and Austin Hooper. While Ridley will undoubtedly continue to grow in this offence, Julio remains the superior player and with Hooper gone there's certainly room for both. Jones is often available early in the second round and that's spectacular value for a guy who's so reliable.DeAndre Hopkins has long been an elite NFL receiver. Outside a frustrating 2016, he's consistently put up sensational fantasy numbers. Now with the Cardinals, he becomes a great unknown again. Kyler Murray isn't Deshaun Watson but in an offence that is trending upwards, it looks like there will be plenty of targets for Nuk to make hay. The key concern for me is whether Hopkins and Murray can develop enough chemistry during the shortened pre-season to allow the receiver to make an immediate impact. That's the key reason I'd avoid taking him in the first round of most leagues.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
With TE A. Hooper's 88 targets up for grabs, NOLA's M. Thomas might be the only WR in 2020 to hold a candle to Jones' target volumeHas averaged more than 100 catches the past 5 seasons and moves into the go-to role in Cards' pass-friendly attack - should be at least business as usual in ARI
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
A monster. 6 year average of 162 targets, 103/1565/6. Now, if I were to find some chips in the Julio armor, his yards per reception were his lowest in a full season since 2015. His yards per target were a career low. This might be the beginning of the end, but I think he gives us a few more good years before that time, he's such a freak, and if I were to bet, he won't age like your standard big WR.ARZ in year 1 with Kyler and Kliff: 554 ATT. ATL led the league with 684 ATT. Other top teams ranged from 633 to 589 in the top 12. So PERHAPS some upward mobility of 30-70 ATT in 2020. Distribution in 2019: Kirk 108 Fitz 109 RBS 103 This leaves plenty of space for Hopkins to still dominate. Smaller pieces will get their small shares but NUK is fine as far as I'm concerned. And how about that RB share? Might run into a similar problem as OBJ, when he left NY. Nuk had a heavy 29% market share in Houston last year(2nd best in the league). The leading target getter of every week over the course of the season in ARZ last year had a target share of 25%. This was an argument with OBJ going to CLE, and the love he got from Eli vs the unknown of CLE. We made the crossroads point of good players earning more targets but OBJ did not overcome, Nuk might not overcome in ARZ. A 25% target share would still be very good for Nuk, just not the volume he enjoyed over his time in Houston. Could theoretically be a 13% knock in production from opportunity. All just made up numbers but we're looking for reasons to knock players down in this area, not highlight why we know they're good.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
You'd have to go all the way back to 2013 to find the last time Julio Jones didnt finish as a top-8 wide receiver in fantasy football, and the only reason he didn't was due to injury (he was the No. 3 wide receiver in points per game that year). Keep in mind he's done all that without scoring a lot of touchdowns. Sure, the Falcons have Calvin Ridley making his way into a bigger role, but you simply cannot find a safer option to finish inside the top-10 every single year.Moving to a new team/offense is never an easy thing to do, especially when you don't get to have an offseason with your new team. Still, you don't trade for someone like Hopkins to not target him like a true No. 1 wide receiver. With Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk in the lineup, it may be hard for him to reach the 150-target mark like he consistently did with the Texans, but Hopkins has shown the ability to be efficient with practically every quarterback he's played with. Still, it drops him just outside the elite tier of Thomas, Adams, and Jones.
